Mechanical Circulatory Support Systems

Abbott supports patients with advanced heart failure with mechanical pumps that restore blood flow to the body, both for the short- and long-term. We design our pumps to be gentle on the blood while they are working so that patients can live longer and fuller lives.

CentriMag Acute Circulatory Support System

CentriMag™ Acute Circulatory Support System is driven by the CentriMag Pump with Full MagLev™ Flow Technology. The pump includes a free-floating magnetically levitated rotor for a contact-free environment. The CentriMag System is the only acute mechanical circulatory support system approved for 30-day use*. The CentriMag System includes both pediatric and adult pump options for a wide range of patient types and sizes.

HeartMate 3 Left Ventricular Assist Device

The HeartMate 3™ Left Ventricular Assist Device is indicated for short- and long-term mechanical circulatory support (e.g., as bridge to transplant or myocardial recovery, or destination therapy) for advanced heart failure patients. HeartMate 3 LVAD with Full MagLev™ Flow Technology delivers unprecedented** survival and safety outcomes as demonstrated in the MOMENTUM 3 Trial at 2 years.1***

HeartMate II Left Ventricular Assist Device

The HeartMate II™ LVAD is designed to provide short- or long-term circulatory support for advanced heart failure patients and is indicated for both destination therapy and bridge-to-transplantation in the United States. Backed by more than 10 years of data, the HeartMate II LVAD is the most widely used and extensively studied LVAD in the world, with more than 27,000 patients implanted worldwide.2,3

HeartMate 3 and HeartMate II LVAS

Rx Only

Brief Summary: Prior to using these devices, please review the Instructions For Use for a complete listing of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, potential adverse events and directions for use.
 

HeartMate 3 LVAS

Indications: The HeartMate 3 Left Ventricular Assist System is indicated for providing short- and long-term mechanical circulatory support (e.g., as bridge to transplant or myocardial recovery, or destination therapy) in patients with advanced refractory left ventricular heart failure.
 

HeartMate II LVAS

Indication: The HeartMate II Left Ventricular Assist System is indicated for use as a “bridge to transplantation” for cardiac transplant candidates who are at risk of imminent death from non-reversible left ventricular failure. It is also indicated for use in patients with New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class IIIB or IV end-stage left ventricular failure, who have received optimal medical therapy for at least 45 of the last 60 days, and who are not candidates for cardiac transplantation. The HeartMate II™ Left Ventricular Assist System is intended for use both inside and outside of the hospital, or for transportation of Left Ventricular Assist Device patients via ground ambulance, airplane, or helicopter.
 

HeartMate 3 and HeartMate II LVAS

Contraindications: The HeartMate 3 and HeartMate II Left Ventricular Assist System is contraindicated for patients who cannot tolerate, or who are allergic to anticoagulation therapy.

Adverse Events:Adverse events that may be associated with the use of the HeartMate 3 or HeartMate II Left Ventricular Assist System include, but are not limited to those listed below: death, bleeding, cardiac arrhythmia, localized infection, right heart failure, respiratory failure, device malfunctions, driveline infection, renal dysfunction, sepsis, stroke, other neurological event (not stroke-related), hepatic dysfunction, psychiatric episode, venous thromboembolism, hypertension, arterial non-central nervous system (CNS) thromboembolism, pericardial fluid collection, pump pocket or pseudo pump pocket infection, myocardial infarction, wound dehiscence, hemolysis (not associated with suspected device thrombosis) and pump thrombosis.
